Sara Gilbert to produce new "mothers" daytime talk show for CBS
UPI News Service, 07/21/2010
Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Holly Robinson Peete, Leah Remini and Marissa Jaret Winokur are to star in a new U.S. daily chat show, CBS said.
The network said it has ordered the 1-hour daytime talk show for the fall.
The six co-hosts are expected to examine topical events and contemporary issues through the eyes of mothers.
"The co-hosts -- moms with children ranging in age from infant to adult -- will swap stories, challenge each other on issues and engage the studio audience and viewers at home about events in the headlines and their own homes through the lens of motherhood," CBS said in a news release Wednesday.
"Show segments will include guest interviews with entertainers and newsmakers, live remotes from the field and personal home footage shot by the co-hosts themselves."
The show was developed by Gilbert, who also serves as executive producer.
"We were looking for a new format that would speak to the core audience but also have the topical and entertainment value to go even broader. This panel is not a bashful bunch; they are outspoken on any issue you put on the table. It promises to be an hour of television with timely discussions, unfiltered opinions and a lot of personality," Barbara Bloom, senior vice president of daytime at CBS Entertainment, said in a statement.
